Teen Science Cafe Network

Teen Science Cafe Network invites teens to hangout at their first Youtube LIVE event to talk about epidemiology - Join the conversation on April 2nd at 11am


Youtube LIVE event HERE


Epidemiology is the study of the spread and impact of disease. One of the key tools in epidemiological research is the use of mathematical models to understand and predict disease spread. These tools can be used to help predict when and where an outbreak might occur and what the best way to stop it would be.

Learn to Code (program) a virtual ROBOT

Meet "VEXcode" Drag > Drop > Drive > with VEXcode VR


VEXcode VR lets you code a virtual robot using a block-based coding environment powered by Scratch Blocks. VEXcode VR is based on VEXcode, the same programming environment used by VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5 robots.


  • Web Based: No software installations required. VEXcode VR works in all major desktop and tablet browsers.
  • Virtual Robots: Choose your pre-built virtual robot. Use drivetrains to navigate. Use sensors to help solve mazes. Use pen features on the art canvas to code a creative drawing. Use the new electromagnet to interact with game objects in challenges.
  • Virtual Playgrounds: Choose from different virtual 3D playgrounds to take advantage of the virtual robot’s features. Control your point of view as the robot runs your code. Visualize data on the playgrounds' dashboard. Playgrounds include grid worlds, art canvases, and walled mazes. There are many more Virtual Playgrounds to come!
  • Challenges and activities: Education experts have created approachable activities that can be easily implemented.
